Kindle Paperwhite Review: Amazon’s Latest E-Reader Is Its Best Yet - WSJ

Not dead yet
"Recommending an e-reader in 2015? Really? Didn’t they get buried along with GPS units and MP3 players? Yes, the e-reader has suffered a slow and painful fall. Only about 3.5 million will sell this year, says market-research firm Forrester, down from 6.4 million just two years ago. Sony got out of the business and Barnes & Noble hasn’t updated its Nook Glowlight in nearly two years. (I expect the company to refresh it this fall.)  Amazon, however, continues to release new models. (So does the lesser-known Kobo.)
That’s because the world still needs e-readers. We need a device that puts millions of books in our hands and allows us to dive into a sea of literature without being constantly pulled out by notifications. Now with twice the pixels, the same 8-week battery life and price, the new Paperwhite does that better than the rest."
